This expense schedule is set up for students entering the program with no previous college credits.  This document assumes a full time load of at least 13 credit hours.  Credit hour loads vary from student to student.  Students who have already completed some of the required general education courses before entering the program may not be required to be a Full Time student during the first three semesters and will therefore have lower maintenance fees than indicated.

Current fees:  $135.00 per credit hour for basic registration fees. There is also a $10.00 per credit hour technology fee added, an activity fee of $4.00 per semester, and a campus access or a parking fee of $10.00 added.  A ONE TIME college application fee of $10.00 is charged to NEW students only.

NOTE: ALL FEES SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE BY ACTION OF THE TENNESSEE BOARD OF REGENTS.
